Dr. Gartzke recently acquired a Class IV Thermal Laser for use at River Falls Spine Chiropractic & Wellness Center. This will allow for even greater treatment options!
As reported in an article about Class IV Lasers published HERE, the benefits of laser treatment can include the following:
Can Reduce Inflammation, Aches and Pains
Intended uses of Class IV laser devices include:
- Promoting relaxation of muscles and providing relief from muscle spasms
- Reducing minor joint aches, pain and stiffness
- Temporarily decreasing arthritis symptoms
- Helping to increase blood circulation
May Help with Recovery from Acute and Chronic Injuries
Using Class IV laser therapy for overcoming both acute and chronic injuries, such as tendonitis or damage to the knees, are among the most common applications. Not only do treatments address damaged tissues in specific areas of the body (knees, shoulders, back, etc.), but they also affect related issues. Overcompensation in some muscles, back pain or poor posture tied to overuse and inflammation may be improved.
Treatments have been shown to provide relief and boost recovery by reducing pain and inflammation as well as stimulating nerve regeneration, muscle relaxation and immune system response.
